Irish firm iTraffic has launched the country’s first nationwide real-time traffic information system.

The system uses UK firm’s ITIS TrafficScience technology to collect information on traffic conditions across the country’s road network.

iTraffic is working with ITIS to deliver applications such as telephone traffic services and a broadcast RDS-TMC service to provide live traffic information across the entire road network.

The system is expected to help commuters and government agencies to find information on traffic and save time and money as well as cut down on CO2 emissions.
